Bosses can make all sorts of crazy demands of their staff, but not allowing them to use the bathroom? Is that really a thing? Oh, yes it is, and we’re going to be talking about it today on Office Horror Stories!
Here’s a preview of the office horror story we will be talking about:
“So, after a while other coworker noticed my supervisor likes to pick on me a lot. It only got worse over time no matter how hard I worked. I got in trouble many times for changing songs on my iPod. I got in trouble for timecard fraud when I was telling my supervisor all the issues, I was having clocking in. The laptop we had to clock in from was either down or frozen. She let the new manager write me up when I told her what was going on. So, after a while I just kept pushing because I'm a single mother with just my income for me and my son. I had to suck it up till I could even find something. Things over time got way worse and I got in trouble for even going to the bathroom. I suffer from panic attacks and mental issues I even had workplace accommodations for when things got bad. One of my male managers told me I had to smile more. I never had a problem with coworkers a lot of them loved how much I helped them or worked with them. Suddenly I was no good anymore and people feared me. It wasn't true but my manager and supervisor told me this. My final straw was I had to let them know when I had to go to the bathroom. If I didn’t, I would get written up, it was insane.”
